Music Workshops Day 3 Part 1

Another amazing morning. We finished the third verse and the chorus, and experimented with slowing the song down. In the end, we decided to keep it upbeat. Freda brought the Keep Fit group into listen, and they were really impressed. We’re almost ready to record…

What Mary did over the weekend. The group took elements of this, and turned it into the third verse.

Eastfield Songs!! Teens recycled at Eastfield House

Sharon took musician Rich Huxley to Eastfield House Day Centre to work with some of the residents there.

They were lovely sessions, with lots of shared memories, some funny, some emotional.

You can hear the song we wrote as a result here http://soundcloud.com/creativeresidencies/teens-recycled

We hope you’ll like it as much as we do.
